Hyatt will open the first Andaz hotel in Thailand

Hyatt is set to mark the luxury and lifestyle hospitality sector in Thailand with the opening of the country’s first Andaz hotel later this year.

Andaz Pattaya Jomtien Beach is a family-run estate located on 6.4 hectares on Tawanron Beach, between the popular resort town of Jomtien and the fishing village of Bang Saray.

Owner Narit Chia-Apar and his son, Chintat Chia-Apar, are overseeing the $150 million transformation project, led by architectural firm A49.

The completed property will offer an internationally branded luxury lifestyle resort in a beachfront setting, surrounded by mature trees and traditional Thai houses.

“I have a passion for this beautiful land and the trees that protect it,” Narit said.

“It has always been my dream to use this special place to showcase the natural beauty of the Na Jomtien region, and I am delighted to be able to achieve this with Andaz Pattaya. With Thailand fully reopened to international travel, now is the perfect time to promote this enchanting and under-explored part of Thailand to the world.

The property aims to showcase the authentic soul of the area and allow travelers to experience it through the eyes of the family who have lived here for generations.

“Andaz Pattaya will be a unique addition to the Thai hotel scene,” Narit added.

“Today’s travelers want to be connected with the spirit of their destination, which is why Andaz’s brand promise of ‘igniting the senses through uniquely local experiences’ will be at the forefront of our resort.

“With Pattaya City already having a well-established reputation as a more lively and mature destination, we believe Na Jomtien can differentiate itself as a fresh and authentic option for nature lovers and a playground for discovery and relaxation. rejuvenation.”

Andaz Pattaya will welcome guests through Rain Tree Court, which is centered around a native tree, while The Village Square is an open space where people can meet and relax. The property features a resort, swimming pools, teak lobby and lounge, as well as restaurants: Wok Wok, La Cucina, Village Butcher and Fish Club.

The traditional teak house has been restored into a tea room, suitable for smaller events, while two heritage houses have been converted into high quality accommodation in the form of a four bedroom duplex mansion and a heritage house six-chamber presidential.
